Athletes against Dow Chemical’s Olympic sponsorship

We, former and current competitive athletes, National Team Members and Olympians, do not feel that Dow Chemical embodies the spirit and humanity of the Olympic movement.

Dow Chemical’s numerous health violations (which are outlined in our open letter), are a direct contradiction to the Olympic Charter’s pledge to protect the health of athletes. That is one of the reasons why we feel Dow Chemical is not a suitable sponsor for the Olympic Games.

We also feel the Code of Ethics and Olympic Charter should be applicable to all Olympic participants, including sponsors.

Athletes Against Dow Chemical’s Sponsorship has no funding, no affiliations and no spokesperson. This campaign is by athletes, for athletes.

It’s aim is to raise awareness among international athletes and encourage athletes to join us in speaking out.
